Please join us on our Thursday SlowRiders Trail social ride.
These are aimed for riders with some fitness and experience in the bank already, who are ready to take on more trails around the hills. We are sharing the ride leader role around with different ride leaders each week and they will be taking us on their favourite rides. We will take any opportunity to session a line or compare thoughts about how to get over it differently. It is designed to build skills and help move riders up in their abilities and fitness.
Our Thursday night rides are organised each week on the CMBC Facebook page.
This group is designed for social, inclusive riding. There’s always someone at the front who’s keen to sort out a good trail and then there’s always someone at the back who is there to encourage and help out along the way. They usually have a tool kit and a first aid kit (just in case) and often carry a hip flask – ok maybe that last part isn’t true…
During winter/daylight savings, lights are essential. If you are wanting to try night riding but don’t yet have lights, please leave a message on the Facebook page and one of our regular riders might be able to loan you a light for the night.
We recommend a minimum of a helmet mounted LED light with 1000 lumens for night rides.
Be responsible for yourself by packing a basic first aid kit, some tools, an extra layer of clothes and some snacks. And be social – leave the race mentality at home, relax, chill, chat, have some fun, encourage everyone and laugh at yourself… 🙂
We’ll then head off somewhere fun and casual for dinner and/or drinks to help with rehydration and planning for weekend adventures!
